Exclamation "Castle Doctrine"/"Stand Your Ground"; Failed Experiments


Quote:

"Researchers at Georgia State and Texas A&M universities used different methodologies and data sources to reach their conclusions, but they ended up in the same place: More people are killed after these laws are passed.

Researchers at Texas A&M University, for a study published in the Journal of Human Resources, concluded that homicides had increased by 8 percent in the more than 20 states that had passed "castle doctrine" laws, many of which include Stand Your Ground provisions. That equals 600 additional homicides every year in those states, they wrote.

At the same time, however, the researchers found no detectable decrease in burglary, robbery or aggravated assault.

"Collectively, these findings suggest that incentives do matter in one important sense: lowering the threshold for the justified use of lethal force results in more of it," the authors concluded in the report. "On the other hand, there is also a limit to the power of incentives, as criminals are apparently not deterred when victims are empowered to use lethal force to protect themselves."

That is funny, African Americans used Stand your Ground as a successful defense twice as often as Whites.

If we end Stand your Ground is because of Racist leftwingnuts,

They passed those laws to appease the NRA. Everyone knew it was B.S.

Show the evidence that a state passed a law to appease the NRA, and how a state would benefit from appeasing the NRA.

From the article linked in the OP -

Quote:
The studies have faced some criticism from conservative media, which focused on the studies' chosen data sources and methodology.

From another article -

Quote:
Florida experienced a spike in murders and manslaughters after passing the law, but the curve has almost returned to the status quo ante. The same is true in New Mexico, Louisiana (slightly) and in Delaware, the rate has continued its slight increase. In Texas, the rate has declined after SYG passage, and the other states have either shown slight declines or no change at all. While one could possibly argue that these rates would have declined more without SYG in place, it’s impossible to argue that SYG has created an environment of escalating homicides.

First sign of propaganda: what states, what years, and what was the national average.

Why is this data missing? Because it has never held up to scrutiny of comparison.
